Alexis Sanchez has picked out the Arsenal teammate whom he believes is very likely to become a key player for the club in the near future.

The Chilean superstar has received a lot of plaudits for his outstanding 2016/17 campaign which saw him finish as the team’s top scorer.

And Sanchez has passed on the praise to Alex Iwobi, who just completed his second season as a member of the first team squad.

According to Arsenal’s star forward, Iwobi’s versatility means he is bound for success as long as he maintains a ‘winning mentality’.

“I really like Alex,” Alexis said. “He’s a player that can play up front, in the centre, he’s good at one on ones.

“If he has a winning mentality and keeps pushing forward I think he can do very well. I really like him.”

Iwobi was a regular member of Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven at the beginning of last season however, he was limited to a place on the bench in the latter stages of the campaign.
